Parking for Attendees of The Ohio EMS Conference on May 18th

Leave early and give yourself plenty of time to park, get into the convention center and enjoy a snack and beverage before we start!

The expanded conference and trade show are held in the Grand Ballrooms, C Hallway and Exhibit Hall C located near the south end of the convention center. Notice: This is the opposite end of the convention center when compared to our previous years’ locations.

The closest parking is available at:

  • The Vine Street Garage is located on Vine Street which is directly across from the convention center. The Vine Street Garage is next door to the North Market and only one-half block from the convention center. If you park in this garage, walk east towards High Street and directly into the convention center doors. Follow the signs. The registration booths are located in front of Exhibit Hall C.
  • The South Garage is located between the Hyatt Regency and Drury Inn on East Nationwide Blvd. If you park here, walk through the hotel and into the adjoining convention center. Once you pass through the glass doors, as you enter the convention center, take the escalators down to the main corridor. The registration booths are located in front of Exhibit Hall C.

This is your third closest parking option:

  • The East Surface Lot near North 4th Street and East Nationwide Blvd.  If you park here, walk towards the west from the lot to the Hyatt Regency. Walk through the hotel and into the adjoining convention center.

Several openings have become available for The Ohio EMS Conference and related events!

Recently we asked all our conference registrants to let us know if their plans had changed and they could no longer attend next week’s EMS conference or other conference-day events. By doing this, we could fill any newly opened seats with people from the wait list.

Thanks to everyone that notified us they could no longer attend, we now have several seats available for the conference and other events. If interested, visit The Ohio EMS Conference page and register through the EventBrite link as soon as possible. These open seats will go quickly!

You may still be able to join us for The Ohio EMS Conference

We’ve had an overwhelming response to this year’s conference and have reached capacity for all events.

Please visit our EventBrite registration site to check for available seats or to join our wait list if none are available.

We want as many people as possible to participate. If you have registered and can no longer attend, please contact ems@ohiohealth.com at your earliest convenience so we may remove you from the roster. This will allow someone on the wait list to join us.

 

Thanks,

The OhioHealth EMS Team
